Though it was famous (or infamous) for Bob's questionable slidework, I believe Jerry almost always played slide on Little Red Rooster.

I'm sure there are other examples. I'm sure there are many examples of him finger-picking too. Someone already mentioned Althea. I know I saw them play Corrina once (maybe '92?) that ended with a mini-MLB jam into drums with some nice finger-picking.

Here's a picture from what looks like 94-95, slide in hand -- http://www.gratefuldead.com/fanphotos/fuzzy-jerry-playing-slide
